Filigree is an ancient technique that involves the creation of lace like silver jewellery out of fine silver wires, utilizing very basic tools.
In this workshop you will learn the basics of making filigree and will then move on to making exquisite Middle Eastern style filigree coils and flowers. We will make 3 different projects
• Filigree Leaf
• Filigree Teardrop Earrings

We will also learn the basics of making a filigree ball
Topics and demonstrations will include; preparation of fine silver filigree wire, construction of flower frames, filigree soldering, traditional filigree wire shapes, making a filigree bail, making soldering with both powder and paste solder.
The workshop is suitable for all levels, but knowing how to solder with a jeweller’s torch would be an asset.
